Sushant Singh Rajput's father breaks his silence.

Sushant Singh Rajput's father has released a video statement, claiming that he had alerted the Mumbai Police on 25 February that his son's life is in danger but they did not take any step. In a self-shot video, KK Singh was quoted as saying by ANI, “On 25 February, I informed Bandra Police that he’s in danger. He passed away on 14 June & I asked them to act against people named in my 25 February complaint. No action taken even 40 days after his death. So I filed an FIR in Patna.”

Earlier Vikas Singh, the lawyer representing Sushant's family, had told in an interview to a TV channel that the family had expressed concern that Sushant was surrounded by people who "they did not trust".

Immediately after Sushant's father's video, the Mumbai Police released a statement clarifying that no such complaint was registered by KK Singh in the Bandra police station. "Regarding Sh. Sushant Singh Rajput Accidental Death, case has been registered on 14th June, 2020. The matter is being investigated by Bandra Police Station, Mumbai. Today, Sh KK Singh, father of late Sushant Singh Rajput, has released a statement saying the family had made a written complaint to the Bandra police station on 25th February. It must be clarified that no such written complaint has been addressed to Bandra Police Station on that date", the statement read.

It continued, "However, one Shri OP Singh IPS, brother-in-law of late Sushant Singh Rajput, had sent some WhatsApp messages to the then DCP zone 9 regarding the matter. The then DCP Zone 9 had called Shri OP Singh and requested that a written complaint is mandatory for any inquiry or action. However, Mr Singh wanted this to be resolved informally, to which the then DCP Zone 9 clearly told him that it was not possible".
